Stafford week-to-week | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Stafford's 1.7% interception rate is the lowest in his career for a season with more than three games played.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is in danger of missing an National Football League game.

Stafford was listed as limited in practice earlier in the week because of hip/back issues. Jeff Driskel and David Blough are next up on the team's QB depth chart. Prior to his injury, Stafford maintained his career highs in passer rating (106.0) and QBR (73.1) this season.

NFL Network reported during the day that there was concern about Stafford's status as he battles hip and back injuries, saying he "could be a real game-time decision".

"I'll be ready to go", Stafford said Wednesday.

According to NBC5, she had grabbed a handgun from her purse after hearing a noise in her backyard and went towards a window. Marquis Jefferson suffered a cardiac arrest and was taken to the hospital Friday night, November 8, Carter said.

Stafford has been on the injury report since Week 4 with a hip issue, but he had only been limited in one practice - back on September 27 - until this week, when the back injury also popped up. "I'm buddies with him, just I wanted him to keep history going because I know he is a tough guy that has played through a lot in his career, and [he] just wasn't able to do it". Last week, Stafford spoke of texting with Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, whose streak was ended recently at 154 games by an ankle injury. "I'm not really anxious about that".

The next morning, Stafford evidently gave in to doctors' suggestions to get further testing done on his back. "Something different, but I'm totally fine".

ESPN reported Stafford's injury would keep him sidelined up to three weeks, though he was being considered week-to-week.

Stafford's wife, Kelly, posted a tribute to her husband on Instagram on Sunday morning.
